Two win scholarships

August 22, 2006

Matthew Fry and Julie Roop each received a $2,500 scholarship from the Maryland Grain Producers Utilization Board during the Maryland Commodity Classic on July 27.

Matthew Fry, son of Ed and Marian Fry, plans to return to the family owned and operated grain and dairy operation on the Eastern Shore after he graduates from Virginia Tech with a major in dairy science.

Julie Roop, daughter of Samuel and Mary Jane Roop, is majoring in Agricultural and Environmental Education at West Virginia University. She plans on returning to Maryland as an ag teacher.

"These two teenagers both have a strong agricultural interest and will be an asset to our industry in the future," said Jason Scott, president of MGPUB.
